How do you define “chutzpah”?
Vancouver has lots of great festivals, but the Chutzpah! Festival stands out for embracing gutsy talent and inspired performances.
In this 12th edition you’ll not want to miss A Blessing on the Moon, a theatrical adaptation of Joseph Skibell’s acclaimed novel, featuring the Warsaw Village Band. All-star collective The Sway Machinery manage to reconcile modern rhythmic power with ancient folklore, mixing Cantorial music with blues, afro-beat and rock.
The Touré-Raichel Collective is a ground-breaking collaboration between Malian desert blues artist Vieux Farka Touré and pianist/composer Idan Raichel, who along with other artists use their acoustic talents to promote peace and cross-cultural harmony.
Peace and cultural harmony: Now, that’s chutzpah.
